Description

Kelp noodles look and taste like Chinese glass noodles. They come in the same little plastic pouches, which you just snip open and they are ready to eat. Although they are pretty tasteless as they are, they are transformed by any of your favourite raw dressings - from plain hemp oil and tamari, to pesto, tomato sauce, or mayonnaise.

They are one of those heavenly foods that are so much fun to eat, you can't believe they score high in the nutrition department as well.

Kelp noodles are made in the USA. This is a catering size packet which contains 6-8 servings.

Sea Tangle says, "We use sun-dried kelp minus the green outer layer, which is a skin. What is left is white and looks very much like our noodles. The dried kelp is made into a powder, which is then added to water and sodium alginate, and then made into the noodles. No heat is used in the process of making the noodles."

Kelp Noodles are a sea vegetable in the form of an easy to eat raw noodle. Made of only kelp (a sea vegetable), sodium alginate (sodium salt extracted from a brown seaweed), and water, Kelp Noodles are fat-free, gluten-free, and very low in carbohydrates and calories. Their noodle form and neutral taste allow for a variety of uses including salads and soups, while their healthful content provides a rich source of trace minerals, which kelp is well known for. Their unique texture completes the package, making Kelp Noodles a one-of-a-kind healthful and tasty alternative to pasta and rice noodles.

Best of all, no cooking is required. Click on "How To Use" below for preparation instructions.

Further Information

We get all of our kelp sourced from farmed waters of southern oceans of South Korea.  They are highly regulated and protected by the government.   When the kelp (KONBU) is harvested, it is sun dried and when ready the outer skin is peeled off by hand.  We do this because we take the inner fleshing of the kelp and it allows its neutral taste-without diminishing the nutrients.  The kelp is then grounded up and sent to us in a powder form.  

Once we receive the kelp we are able to combine the kelp powder and water in a giant mixer and turn it into a noodle form through our specialized strainers.  Furthermore, a natural compound within the kelp called sodium alginate is what allows the kelp and water to be bonded back together into a noodle form.  

During the process from farming to manufacturing of the kelp noodles...there is no cooking or boiling involved.  The water that we use is regulated at 101 degrees.  

How To Use

Kelp noodles need no cooking, but you can't just eat them straight from the packet either. Well, you can, but they don't taste the best! Here are our top tips for Kelp Noodle preparation:

  1. Rinse well in warm water. Kelp noodles are in an alginate (natural seaweed) preservative, that has a slight metallic flavour. So you want to wash that off.
  2. Cut to size with scissors. Kelp noodles are very long in the packet, and it's difficult to eat them if you don't cut them up a bit first.
  3. Next you need to soften them. The best way is to marinade them in your chosen sauce for a couple of hours (or even overnight) before eating. Kelp noodles have a neutral flavour, but absorb flavours readily, just like pasta or tofu. There are tons of recipes in Kate's books, but they go well in a marinara sauce or a creamy nut or seed based sauce.
  4. If you don't have time for the pre-marinade stage, our top tip is to pour 1tbsp of tamari and the juice of 1 lemon over 340g bag rinsed kelp noodles. Then massage this dressing in for a few minutes until the noodles start to soften. Excess dressing can be poured off, and stored and saved for a salad dressing or soup recipe.
  5. Kelp noodles should keep when opened for 3-4 days in the fridge.
